    turbo heat shield and wastegate rod ?

    I just recently installed an invida down pipe on my 02 wrx and couldn't seem to get the stock turbo heat shield to fit back on. Do you need that heat shield to keep the turbo cool and I think that I may have bent the wastegate rod trying to get the heat shield on. Is the rod supposed to be absolutely strait or is it supposed to be slightly bent at the back end. I drove the car and it seemed to be boosting fine it would jump up to .1 but then drop back down to the next notch and that is before boost drop of at high rpms. Thanks for any imput.

    yeah you have to cut the heatshield to get it to fit back on.. or buy an aftermarket one.. i think someone was selling a chimney style one on here on clubwrx.net or nasioc.com

    Cobb sells a nice looking one. I'm running no heat shield right now, and I haven't had any problems. I think for extended periods you will get heat-soak on the IC, but I'm not terribly worried about it right now, because I'm going front-mount in like two weeks
    My poor tranny!... someone sell me an aspen white 06 sti.
